Cancellation Policies and Student Responsibilities

For over 40 years the Préville Fine Arts Centre has continued to offer programs in the domains of music (our main activity) and the fine arts in order to expose youth and their families to the rich culture of the arts. We are pleased to welcome you to our family!

For Group Lessons:

If you are unable to attend your course, please advise your teacher in advance. Courses missed by the student cannot be made up or refunded. 

Student Responsibilities

  • Arrive on time.
  • Maintain a positive attitude toward your teacher and the other students.
  • Talk with your teacher regarding any questions or concerns.

Discontinuing a Course

If you are unable to continue taking the course, please contact the Centre at least 48 hours prior to your regularly scheduled lesson. Notice given to the teacher alone is not sufficient. Tuition fees will be refunded starting from the time of written notification (e-mail).

For Individual Lessons:

Should you need to cancel a lesson, please contact your teacher directly, or the Centre at 450.671.2810 by phone, or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Individual arrangements may be made in the case of a prolonged illness.

Should your teacher require the cancellation of a lesson, it will be rescheduled at a time mutually convenient to both you and your teacher. If a mutually convenient time cannot be found, a credit will be applied for that lesson.

For Group Classes:

If a course is under enrolled (under 4 pupils) the class becomes a semi-private class of half and hour.

There is no change in free. If a class has only one pupil, it becomes a half hour lesson with the associated fee of $20.00

Student Responsibilities

  • Arrive on time.
  • Maintain a positive attitude toward your teacher, lessons and practice.
  • Talk with your teacher regularly about expectations and achievements.
  • Practice daily.


For success with a musical instrument you will need a weekly lesson and regularly scheduled practice time. Minimum practice sessions are 15 minutes every day for beginners. Your teacher will make further recommendations.

  • Set aside a regularly scheduled practice time each day. Do not leave practicing to chance.
  • Expect to repeat difficult sections at least 4 or 5 times.   
  • Merely playing one’s music through once does not constitute practicing.
  • Practice slowly and carefully, concentrating on the work at hand.
  • Practice short sections at a time.
  • Remember that your teacher is there to help. All questions are important!

In order to be part of the Préville Fine Arts Centre, students must agree to above mentioned cancellation policies and student responsibilities.


Parent Testimonial

My daughter loved the Préville Fine Arts summer camp!

She is really looking forward to going back this summer. Such a wide variety of activities, which is a great way of introducing young children to different forms of art. She especially loved drawing, and learning how to play the piano!!

A very well organized summer camp, and very enriching for the children.
